Default Dell Mini won't recognize battery - 02-23-2011, 10:45 PM

hello everyone, sorry for what I'm sure will be a basic question. My newphew has a barely used Dell Mini and the system refuses to recognize the battery, only works while plugged into the wall. i've seen some strings on google saying to go to system preferences, dumb me can't quite figure out how to navigate to this locaton.

So question:

What's the best solution to this problem.

If you offer some advise,please dumb it down to a basic user.

has someone updated the system BIOS recently or is the battery a 3rd party battery (non-Dell)?
